My first day of internet browsing:


It was a Sunday and I remember that and there is a point to note that I can use internet only when my dad is not present because he desired that he  have more pay large telephone bills since we were having dial up connection at that point of time.Here comes the story of the first day of my internet. I was sitting in-front of the PC aimless what shall I do with internet.

I was greatly interested in tweaking Windows XP with control panel,  and many other various settings. In many occasions there are many places where you can be dragged to a browser. When there was no internet installed in my home . Internet explorer will says “You are currently offline“. I analyzed that stuff in the internet in my first visit. And what I did was checking more themes online stuff if the Themes category of Windows XP. Sweet memories to remember. It was in the time period of January 2006.

My favorite PC game


The passion for this game started when I was a budding computer user in 2006. I was interested in tweaking the different components of a software tool. Starting from control panel, Windows Media player equalizer, etc. At that time period I was having some arcade game given by one of my friends of my dad.

There are plenty of clones for this game in the internet and one of the most popular clones in the internet was DXBALL. Most of the readers by now knew about this famous clone of the game I guess. Yes, Arcanoid is my favorite game with PC. When I started the program and start playing the game for the first time, I found the mouse sensitivity for the game to be too high as I was a budding mouse control expert too; I couldn’t control the mouse easily. Then after plenty of attempts and good practice it helped me with not only mouse control but also mind reflexes. Do you agree that it’s a mind game yes I do agree. We need to judge wisely to protect the ball.

In DXBALL, the different components used in the game such as music, sound effects, are present in the particular name of the components used in the game such as for ball bounce, Ball hit, etc and I was interested in editing the sound effects which are in the format of .WAV. They can be edited using sound recorder and also why not I can replace with Pinball sound effects too. I did those kind of stuffs..

In the year 2007, I came across a website called

http://www.caiman.com

This site was a famous small game website where one can download plenty of arcade games from it. Most of the games are small. Even today I found the particular website to be identical with the same web interface what I have seen in the time period of 2007, January.

In that website there are as many as 83 arcanoid games available free to download. At that point of time I aw using dial up connection so I could download only 4 to 6 KBs per second. And on the other hand I must use the internet when my dad is not present.

In this case I mostly download games only in the file size up to 8GB. I enjoyed most of the arcanoid games in the site.

I enjoyed a trial version of a sensationally programmed arcanoid game in the same year using a trick and the game is “Ricochet Extreme”. The trial version of the game can be run only for 2 hours in the calculated time time period of how much minutes the game has been used.

I used a particular trick for that 2 hours restriction. The trick is Firstly when I install the game. I will set a system restore point in the system with a particular name. When two hours finishes, I will go to safe mode and I will make my computer to land at the restore point which I set when I installed the game. And when I initiate the game again in my windows start up Two hours recharged again. Thus my most favourite PC game made me do many enthusiastic things with my PC.

Startup Optimizer wise for slow PCs


Before I start the contents of the post I like to quote a word by saying that.
There are still slow computers at home in some parts of the world and I am one among the user.
To describe about the fastest state that a computer can act with a particular OS is the state of no software installed in it.
Take my computer as example. I was initially having RAM memory of 128MB(DDR1),At present 256MB(DDR1). What a great difference?? :-). Both of them are considers as world’s ancient piece of junks today. I use Windows XP Service pack 2.

When I was with my 128MB RAM PC, large programs initiate very slowly.And at that point of time. For optimising the speed of PCs, soft-wares such as SpeedItUp  and WinOptimizer were famous. I like to state a factor which I found on my PC when using those two software. As I stated before a computer is fastest when there is no software installed in it. When SpeedItUp  up or WinOptimizer are used, the task of the software is to free RAM space. So, at the very second when we ask it, It frees much amount of the RAM Space, 60% to be approximately specific when I was running Windows XP in 128MB RAM at that point of time. So in this case these two software(considering individually) make a permanent allotment reduction to some windows applications memory. So despite even before installing many software in the system the computer can be made slow by installing this small application and asking to free RAM memory.

Computer must have a decent fast startup and refreshment speed when switched on, So to there is a smart alternative to overcome this problem. Which is using the software Startup Optimiser. It is free tweak utility for Windows available for all Windows operating system starting from XP.

This software clearly displays the different processes which are carried out when the user is logged in. By minimising the tasks in process which are allowed to be initiated, we make a computer to run with decent speed with windows default memory allotments.
